Early Wednesday morning, on October 26th, Atlanta police surrounded and entered Woodruff Park (re-named Troy Davis Park)on orders from Mayor Kasim Reed, and began arresting members of Occupy Atlanta who had been living in the park. Many had spent the last 20 days living in the park while protesting corporate greed, financial crimes on Wall Street, corporate money in elections, police brutality, poverty, student debt, home foreclosures, homelessness and many, many other social injustices. 52 people were arrested, and all but two were released on bond the next day. This film is what we witnessed in the streets of Atlanta that night.
